VariousDave Hamilton's Detroit Soul ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s. Used ... $12.99
Rare Detroit soul from the archives of Dave Hamilton – the vast majority from the fertile late 60s period, plus a couple of later cuts – soulful Hamilton productions and featuring wonderful numbers by Bobby Dee, Priscilla Page, The Moderations, Frenchy & The Chessmen, Harry Reid, Charmaine, Sue Ann Jones, Emanuel Taylor, Billy Soul and more! Hamilton may not be one of the best known names in the soul music canon, but his imprint is massive – both as a producer and performer. This great Ace comp of rare singles is a fine document and it's filled with excellent tracks. A treasure trove! 25 tracks in all: "Take Care Of Your Own Business" by Dave Hamilton, "Sweet Thing Part 1" by Bobby Dee, "I'm Pretending" by Priscilla Page, "I'm Begging You" by Chicago Pete, "All Because Of You" by The Moderations, "You Gotta Show Me" by Billy Soul, "Won't You Come On Home by Harry Reid, "Don't You Listen" by Charmain, "Missing You" by Sue Ann Jones and more.

VariousDisco (Not Disco) – Left Field Disco Classics From The New York Underground ... CD
Strut (UK), 2000. Used ... $19.99
The quirky 80s downtown club scene lives again in this chilling post-disco collection from Strut! The set's got a similar feel to the 9 O'Clock Drop set on Nuphonic – and fits in nicely with the rediscovery of groups like ESG and 23 Skidoo. The cuts are extremely hard to pin down – a bit funk, a bit punk, some disco, and a touch of soul – and there's more than a few on here that we never thought we'd hear again after 1985! Titles include "Kiss Me Again" by Dinosaur, "Cavern" by Liquid Liquid, "I Walk" by Don Cherry, "Over & Over" by Material, "Tell You Today (12" mix)" by Loose Joints, "School Bell" by Indian Ocean, "Voices Inside My Head" by Common Sense, "Spasticus Autisticus (version)" by Ian Dury & The Compass Point All Stars, and "Walking On Thin Ice (1981 re-edit)" by Yoko Ono. Wild stuff! CD

✨✧ VariousI Got Soul – Blacksploitation Mood ... CD
Playoff (France), Early 70s. Used ... $8.99
Classic funky soul from the 70s – a set that definitely lives up to the blacksploitation groove promised in the title, thanks to a host of classics from the left field of the funky spectrum! Some of these cuts are well-remembered from back in the day, but most are the kind of underground tracks that have grown in strength over the years – thanks to circulation as hip hop samples, or on rare groove playlists – and in fact, the whole track list here might well read as kind of a dream list to hear on a funky dancefloor! Titles include "I Believe In Miracles" by The Jackson Sisters, "Give Me Your Love" by Sisters Love, "Across 110th Street" by Bobby Womack, "Testify" by Johnnie Taylor, "Talkin Loud & Sayin Nothin" by James Brown, "Love Me Back" by Willie Hutch, "I Cry" by Millie Jackson, "Hang Out & Hustle" by Sweet Charles, "Brother Louie" by Undisputed Truth, "Superfly" by Curtis Mayfield, and "Who Is He & What Is He To You" by Creative Source.

✨✧ VariousNigeria Soul Fever – Afro Funk, Disco, & Boogie – West African Disco Mayem ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used 2 CDs ... Just Sold Out!
The Nigerian groove of the 70s – way past the familiar modes of Fela Kuti, and served up here in a range of artists who followed on a huge second wave of soul that soared from Lagos and beyond in the second half of the decade! The music here opens up in a sweet range of different styles – including bits of club and boogie that have come into the scene to open up Nigerian funk in more global modes for the dancefloor – blending African roots with American currents, in a sound that's completely unique – and which is way better than some of the Afro-disco modes that were coming from Europe a the time! As usual with the folks at Soul Jazz, the set's an ear-opening work of genius – from the superb track selection, to the very thorough notes and research – which really do a great job of presenting this side of Nigerian funk that's always been a bit eclipsed by some of the bigger names on the scene. Liner notes are by dancefloor historian Bill Brewster – and titles include "Do The Funkro" by Joni Haastrup, "You Can't Change A Man" by Christy Essien, "Afrikana Disco" by Akin Richards & The Executives, "Ocheche" by Don Bruce & The Anges, "Nam Myoho Renge Kyo" by Tee Mac, "Get Up & Dance" by Benis Cletin, "Enoviyin" by Colomach, "Nwaeze" by Jimmy Sherry & The Musik Agents, "Wake Up Your Mind" by Joni Haastrup, "Disco Dancing" by Angela Starr, "Mr Been To" by Arakatula, "Living Every Day" by Tee Mac with Marjorie Barnes, "Wake Up Africa" by Arakatula, and "Soul Fever" by Benis Cletin.
